  • Re-Directs and SEO

    3/16/10:

    While I would still like to know the answer, it is no longer an issue for our site / store... We transfered over the DNS servers. Now we have other issues. <G>

    Several months ago, we registered our domain name and setup an account with a hosting site. We started setting up our site and I came to the conclusion, that trying to integrate a shopping cart, store, etc., was really more than I wanted to do, so we set things up with 3dCart. We have gone "live", but I have some concerns about the stats and SEO.

    Right now, our domain "Furr-Kidz.com", automatically redirects people to our 3dCart store... https://furr-kidz.3dcartstores.com This is true for any entry of "www.furr-kidz.com or many of the subpages under it (/contents, /main, /??).

    My "main" question (here) involves how "spiders", etc. see things... Will they go to www.furr-kidz.com and look there (and only there), or will they automatically follow the re-direct to https://furr-kidz.3dcartstores.com?

    Secondary question... The "stats" on 3dCart is setup for "furr-kidz.com"... What is it looking at? The stats for www.furr-kidz.com, or is it following the redirect to the store?

    I have a "reason" (valid, or otherwise) for doing it this way, but I do not want to be shooting myself in the foot, so to speak and if necessary / beneficial will change the DNS, etc.

    Thanks

    John
